Pet Help Sessions - December 2014

Tips on How to Select a Canine Companion

Selecting a companion for the next 10-15 years is a very important decision. Whether adopting a homeless pup from a shelter or purchasing one from a responsible breeder, it is imperative to find the right match for you and your lifestyle. Are you looking for a dog that is good with kids, cat friendly, thinking of adding a second dog, or just looking for a mountain biking companion? At this Help Session Dog-Ed will simplify the process and provide professional guidance to lead you to the right match.
